Last weekend my preschooler and I threw an unforgettable tea party with our closest girl friends. Having a little girl means relishing in all things girlie and having a tea party has been on my daughter’s to do lost since our last one. I have to admit, as tom-boyish as I am, I enjoy the prep and the party!
Since the day we chose to have our tea party was a scorcher, we decided to make it an iced-tea party and served chamomile tea to the kids (to avoid caffeine rushes) and regular iced tea with lemon and mint for the moms. Along with tea we also had delicious Blue Bunny ice cream treats to cool off from the hot day. There was something delicious for everyone in the Blue Bunny line- my personal faves are the dark chocolate covered vanilla and the English toffee. Many of the moms loved the caramel swirl, while most of the little girls played it safe and chose the milk chocolate covered vanilla.
The little girls and their moms each got to wear an adorable tea-party worthy hat, which completed the tea party theme and provided some fun and laughs. After the party everyone went home with their hats and many of the little girls have brought them out during play dates! Aren’t little girls so precious?
Along with tea and ice cream, I also purchased fun head band making kits to keep the girls busy. Since they were all dressed up, I didn’t want them to run around and get dirty, so a craft was the way to go! This is the second year we have hosted the Cadbury High Tea party and since the little girls love it so much, we plan on hosting them more often. We already have another set up in a few weeks, where the girls will bring the hats they received during the Cadbury High Tea party, and dress up in their fun dresses to have a fun tea party.
Everyone from the party would love to that Mommy Parties and blue bunny for providing everything we needed for a fun tea party!
